New Member K68 baseline adjust to get it started

Recommended Posts

Hello all, picked up my first and only  Dnepr around 2016 when I traded for a 78 vw beetle. Ran rough if at all and until last year I didn’t invest anything but time and sweat pushing it back home. I think it’s mostly a mid 80’s model as it’s Titled in Tennessee as a 2008 build.  Picked up two K68 carbs when I bit the bullet and bought a used sidecar out of the Ukraine. Was running dramatically better and I was hunting for more mid range torque when it choked out as I was adjusting and hasn’t started sense.

Question: Please recommend a base line to set the K68 carbs too to get it started again.  When I switched out the K65’s my throttle cables were too short and I cut and bottomed out the adjuster to get 2-3mm of slack in the cables           ( might be my issue) as the K65 idol screw doesn’t exist on the new.
